The Chomas Creations embossing/scoring kit will emboss or score anything the original Cricut, Cricut Expression, Cricut Create, Cricut Imagine, Cricut Expression 2, or Cricut Mini usually cuts. It includes an embossing/scoring tip and a rubber mat. **(note the mat is latex, if you have a latex allergy you may not be able to use this, I will sell the embossing tip seperately if you contact me. You can use the silicone stamp material from Cricut with the embossing tip). The embossing works best on vellum, metal sheets and thinner, nontextured cardstocks. The embossing/scoring tip is PINK!!!
The embossing/scoring kit is available now for $32 in the Chomas Creations store.
Frequently asked questions on the embossing/scoring kit...
Do I need another one of your holders to hold the embossing tip?
No, the embossing tip fits into your Cricut machine where you would normally put the blade holder & needs no adaptor.
Why isn't the mat sticky?
We tried samples of mats with adhesive on them, but the embossing just didn't work as good on the adhesive mats, as when it was just using adhesive on the sides of your embossing surface. Embossing works better when the embossing surface has some give. And the other side of the mat isn't sticky because it will easily stick to any of your existing Cricut mats, this helped keep our costs down and we could send the savings on to you!
What about other sized tips for embossing?
We tried tons of different sized tips, and this size works the best. There was not enough difference in the outcome of the different sized tips to make more then one size.
Why can't I emboss on thick cardstock?
The Cricut machine just does not have the power to emboss on really thick cardstock. But as I have shown it does work on thinner, non textured cardstocks very well & does a fantastic job on metal sheets & vellum!
What is the embossing tip made of?
The embossing/scoring tip is made of light weight aluminum and goes in your Cricut in place of your blade holder!
What do I need to score with the embossing/scoring tip?
Just the Chomas Creations embossing/scoring tip! There is no special mat involved with scoring. Score any fold for a card, box, anything you need to fold.
The mat is made of latex and goes on top of an existing Cricut mat. I like to use an old mat, clean it with liquid dish soap and scrape off all of the lint. I then use either a Zig 2 way glue stick or Aleene's Tack it Over glue mixed half water, half glue and put those on the mat to resticky it. I also like to add some double sided adhesive in each corner of the mat to make sure they don't peel up.
